We at DVerse MTB are taking inspiration from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam today. Stanzas are 4 lines long with the rhyme scheme AABA. Generally, the lines are written in iambic pentameter, but we are allowed be creative with the precise form today. I often like to write rubai, so it was nice to see the form featured.
The days fall down like rows of dominoes,
And who will know the way the future goes?
May I make wise decisions in this hour,
And steer this boat well, as the river flows.
